Track Name: happy birthday
met your new girlfriend last night
she's really cute you guys look cool together
and I just want to start a fight
it makes me feel like you love me

happy birthday
It's been a year
My head still spinning
Wear you left it

bite my lips until they bleed
let the taste distract me from the memories
now you're laughing at her jokes
but looking at me because you know how I still know

happy birthday
it's been a year
my head's still spinning
where you left it

where you left it
where you left it
where you left it

happy birthday to me again
Track Name: perfect hair
so much has changed since we last were here
ive outlined my eyes and dyed my hair
the matches I had lay withered black
been stumbling down endless winding paths

if it's true what they say about time
if it's true what they say about time
if it's true what they say about time
i won't want to die the next time I see

you were always on my mind
been searching for you not knowing what Id find
wish there were a way of going back
been trying to find the words to distort the facts

if it's true what they say about time
if it's true what they say about time
if it's true what they say about time
i won't want to die next time I see you
Track Name: american family
i have bad credit too
parents demonstrated what not to do
clueless indulgences make you feel good
got carried away in the prescribed word

look i have moving parts
build me up now watch me fall apart
sign my name on the dotted line
because you promised that id be fine

ignore everything i hope it goes away
i know that to be the american way
i hear high heels on my slanted roof
they're sending morse code telling me what to do

look i have moving parts
build me up now watch me fall apart
sign my name on the dotted line
because you promised that id be fine

parents demonstrated what not to do
i was trying to be cool
lost track of my childlike mind
the one that remembered how to smile
Track Name: swingset
these thin white walls don't conceal much
i lay in bed
with my ears covered
try to pretend
the sun's not shining
echoes of birds and
words remind me

i like the comfort of being alone
what is everyone fighting for
claws on glass ceilings they want more
I never left my mother's womb

Lift my head up
and pull the blinds back
see a man dead
beneath the swing set
who do i call
to find his family
and see his body
layed to rest they'd like that

i like the comfort of being alone
what is everyone fighting for
claws on glass ceilings they want more
I never left my mothers womb
